After weeks of speculation and a national furore over a possible television interview, Schapelle Corby's first words to Australia since her release from prison were: "I feel like a crab."

Corby was speaking from beneath a veil after she was bundled into a car surrounded by cameras and reporters outside Bali's Kerobokan prison.

The convicted drug smuggler's voice can be heard on a promotional video for the Australian Seven television network's current affairs program, Sunday Night.

The video has been posted online on Thursday night ahead of the program on Sunday.

Those first words are followed by compliments to the car's driver as the gathered media pack is left behind as they speed away.

"Nice one, driver," Corby says on the promotional video. "Woo hoo!."

The video contains footage of her jumping up and down with excitement when she arrives at her destination - presumably the luxury villa where she has been staying since her release.

She then removes the veil and is seen to be grinning with happiness.

There has been intense speculation over how much the Seven network offered to pay Corby and her family for an exclusive interview following her release from prison on parole on February 10, with reports claiming that the family was offered around $2 million.

Seven West Media, which owns the Seven network, and Corby's sister, Mercedes, have both launched legal action against the Australian Federal Police.

Up to 30 AFP officers raided Seven's Sydney offices last week allegedly looking for proof of a possible interview deal with Corby that may have been contrary to the Proceeds of Crime Act.
